Sancerre, Cher, Berry, Centre-Val de Loire
Our adorable 200 year old cottage, La Maison Tranquille, is to be found in the east of the Loire countryside surrounded by many rivers and canals, which offer beautiful walks and cycle paths. Our family's second home for more than 20 yrs, we were attracted immediately by both the privacy and tranquility this home from home offers. We are sure you too will appreciate it. The cottage is on two floors & is surrounded by a delightful sunny garden, which has been planted with sweet-scented flowers, aromatic herbs and fruit trees.

I am so pleased that your stay was idyllic: just what I always hope. And so glad that the village bistro adds that authentic French cuisine at the end of a two minute walk. Parfait. And thanks for posting too.
